Several of Starbucks® famous coffee roasts are available in the Keurig® K-Cup® pod format including French Roast, Pike Place, Breakfast Blend, Veranda, Cafe Verona, and Caramel. For my fellow Starbucks junkies, this has been a dream come true as we can now feed our habit right in our own home- any time of day. No more searching for a 24 hour Starbucks® or wishing they delivered! The only thing missing in the pod format is an espresso. Keurig® brewers are not capable of brewing a true espresso but, using the lowest water setting of the machine is close enough for me.

After all, life is far too short for bad coffee and with a little know-how and online savvy, gourmet coffee pods can fit any budget.
After ten years in the industry, we have found the best place to get a good deal on Keurig® brewers and coffee is through online distributors. There are a variety of reasons that all add up to time and money saved.
Hosting family and friends for the holidays can be stressful, to say the least. Whether they are visiting for a few hours or a few days, the experience may leave you looking at Canadian real estate.

What you need my friend is tangible advice, and to that end, I would like to offer three words: keep it simple. You do not need to wow your visitors with extravagant holiday decor nor do you need to do everything yourself.
Save the coffee grounds the next time you use your Keurig® brewer to treat yourself a fresh cup of coffee! The benefits of coffee don't stop with the beverage. Leftover coffee grounds surprisingly have many applicable uses at home. For example, used coffee grounds could make a great repellent against pests like slugs and fleas. It could also be used to get rid of common household odor found in appliances such as refrigerators. The following infographic outlines ten great uses of coffee grounds at home.

If you love coffee, then you know there’s nothing quite like that first cup in the morning—hot, flavorful, a helpful cup to get you on your way to the rest of the day. And when it comes to comparing coffee, there’s nothing quite like a well-brewed cup (and nothing quite as bad as one that isn’t as well-done).
